Women want personalized, quality care during their pregnancy and for their baby after birth. Patients choose a Health plan, provider, and hospital based on reputation. Standardized maternity data can help patients decide where and how they want to receive their care. This same data can inform providers on how to improve systems and care to improve maternal and neonatal outcomes.
